Nourish Your Practice

Yoga Retreat with Azure Wolfe

Set in late autumn at a beautiful destination, it’s a perfect time to transition a little more inward. Starting to focus, revisit or implement the practices that make ALL parts of us feel nourished.

So, get ready to flow through foundational yoga postures every day, allowing us to become more familiar with their benefits and how beautiful it is to continually revisit the same postures on a consistent basis. We will keep it simple so that you can take this practice home and implement it into your daily life. Whether you are looking to go slow and strong or gentle and relaxed, there’s an option for everyone.

We’ll also be nourishing our bodies with amazing food. Nourishing our curiosity with excursions, exploration, journaling, sharing. Nourishing our spirits just by being open to the experience.

Yoga and Workshops

Yoga of the Mind

The practice of bringing your mind back to your body.

Pranayama 

Connecting your body through relaxed and functional breathe-work.

Yin Yoga

Experience the benefit of gently leaning into discomfort and learning to relax with it. This practice greatly helps us to lean into some of the discomfort of life and find more ease through the process.

*With each of these workshops, we will be journaling after each one. Don’t worry if you’ve never written in a journal, I will be giving you prompts or questions to answer to help open you up and get curious.

 

 

 

Itinerary

Day 01 - Welcome

After arrival into Portugal, you’ll be whisked away and dropped off at our beautiful mountainside retreat centre. After a few hours of relaxation and getting to know your new friends, we’ll head to our opening ceremony followed by a grounding practice with Azure.

A welcome dinner and a good night’s rest follows.

Day 02 - Rooting & Relaxing

Our first full day in Portugal together will begin with meditation and a yoga flow, journaling prompts and a nourishing breakfast.

After breakfast you may choose to relax on the grounds, familiarize yourself with your new gorgeous surroundings or hire a bike to explore the area.

We’ll enjoy a light lunch on site and gather for our first workshop Yoga of the Mind – The practice of bringing your mind back to your body. Dinner follows along with an evening meditation to help you wind down and prepare for a fun filled day ahead.

Day 03 - Coasts & Cliffs

Our day begins with meditation and yoga. After a nourishing breakfast, we’ll prepare to head to the world-famous coastline of the Algarve, where the soul of Portugal dwells. Located on the south-western tip and lapped by the Atlantic from two sides, this area is known for its golden sand beaches, stunning cliff and rock formations, surfing, picturesque cities, local crafts, cuisine and more!

Our first stop will be a hike to Ponta da Piedade, where we’ll explore one of the most stunning rock formations in the entire region. See the dramatic limestone coastline formed of sea pillars, fragile rock arches and hidden grottos where exposed cliffs reveal their golden color – all surrounded by turquoise sea water.

Later we’ll explore Faro, the pearl of the Algarve, that features a scenic old town and a picturesque marina. Enjoy some sightseeing, shopping or lunch (free time at your leisure).

Late afternoon we’ll head back to our retreat centre to enjoy dinner and a relaxing Yoga Nidra practice.

Day 04 - Centering

Today will be a day to find your center. We’ll start our morning with meditation and yoga. Take time to go inward, relax by the pool, read a book, journal, or go out into the nature that surrounds the property.

In the afternoon, fuel up on lunch and indulge in massages and further relaxation.

At sunset, we’ll come together for a beautiful yin practice guided by Azure and end our day with a nourishing dinner.

Day 05 - Dolphins & Grotto

We’ll start our morning meditation and yoga before embarking for yet another adventure. Today, we’ll see the Algarve from a different vantage point, from a boat! We’ll get up close to some incredible grottos and we might even spot some dolphins. We’ll stop for lunch in town before heading back to our retreat centre.

Spend the afternoon basking in the sun and enjoying our retreat centre before dinner and a relaxing meditation to get us ready for bed.

Day 06 - WONDROUS, WILD SOUL & WINE

Today we meditate with the sunrise overlooking the mountains. After a yoga session and a satisfying breakfast, relax poolside, or in a hammock somewhere on the property, take some time out for YOU.

After lunch we’ll head to a local vineyard to sample some local wines and enjoy some local bites, or stay back and enjoy our retreat centre.

In the afternoon we’ll come together for Azure’s Pranayama workshop – relaxed and functional breath techniques to help connect to our body.

After our final dinner, we’ll come together to close our time together with a meditation and gratitude circle.

Day 07 - SEE YOU LATER!

Our last morning together will include yoga, meditation and connection. We’ll end our time with breakfast and goodbye’s (or see you later’s)!

Retreat Location

Wild View Retreat has arisen from the ruins of an abandoned mountain village of Corgas Bravas, in the foothills of the Algarve in Portugal. It is defined by its spectacular uninterrupted 360° views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains and protected for its natural beauty and famous Portuguese cortiça (cork) trees.

There are no cars, no roads, no buildings, no neighbours. Nothing but wilderness and nature. Nothing to hear but the birds and the wind. Nothing to do but restore and relax the body, mind and soul.
